ROTFLMAO

At best, you are incredibly naive. Those policies will stop the
companies for all of one picosecond, if that long.

I've a feeling The Apache Foundation has never had to test their
trademark policy with organizations whose modus operandi is to ignore
the law. Organizations whose legal status is, at best, shaky. Invariably
with a domicile outside of the United States.

If the Apache Foundation doesn't have a formal policy on dealing with
victims of swindlers, formulating that policy now would be a very good
idea. Something that the legal team can mull through, before the first
victim of an Apache OpenOffice swindle posts a support question to a
list, forum, or other point of contact.

A policy that won't result in The Apache Foundation having to defend
itself in a frivolous lawsuit, because the victim paid for support
provided by a venue run by The Apache Foundation.
